We love to hear from you, get you involved and help you staying mentally strong.
Paint or clay
We regularly organise paint and clay workshops in small groups. The counsellor explains about the session, you start being creative and use paint, clay etc to express your thoughts and then sit in a group to explain what you have made and the thoughts behind it.
Play the game
Memory Game labelled with different emotion cards designed by a local Burmese cartoonist can be played with a partner or a group of friends in school. You not only play the game but also learn to talk about emotions, which is good for emotional well-being and gives you the benefits of expressing with others. This is a lighthearted way of reminding that “emotions are normal and it is good to talk about them with your partner”.
Join our free emotional workshop
Every Wednesday and Saturday (6 – 8 pm) we organise a free emotional workshop for anybody to join and actively listen, reflect, show empathy and share your feelings with others. It’s free of charge and a big relief for many. It’s necessary to sign up in advance so look out for the announcements on Counselling Corner | Facebook
Write in your gratitude journal
Keeping a record of your own thoughts, plans, emotions and positive experiences is good to stay mentally strong. Counselling Corner’s gratitude journal is a perfect gift for yourself or others. Have a look at this video (link to Nora’s explanation) on how to best use the journal. Gratitude Journal | Facebook
